I am currently having a particularly hard time getting some text down
onto a 2 bit png file using PIL and i was wondering 
if anyone has been successful in doing this could you please provide
me with some pointers or sample code.

Here is a piece of test code I have written which doesn't throw a
traceback error &  doesn't modify the image it is intended to.


# Write Some Text On A 2 Bit png File With A White Background

import os, Image, ImageDraw, ImageFont, _imagingft

FontType = ImageFont.load('c:\\Python20\\PIL\\pilfonts\\courB10.pil')

ImageEdit = Image.open('c:\\Test2\\Test.png')

addtext = ImageDraw.Draw(ImageEdit)

addtext.text((20,20), 'Here is some text',128, FontType,None)
